As a fiber artist I seek to use a traditional craft technique to create are which celebrates the rich history of the skill and yet highlights that modern aesthetic. I aim to make functional pieces, which a strong visual composition which can be cherished in the household as both a work of art and eventually as a family heirloom imbued with the owner’s own memories of use.
All my full size quilts are hand quilted with “big stitch” quilting, using a heavier thread and larger stitching than is often found in more traditional quilts. All my quilts, blankets and pillows are made with high quality materials, such as 100% cotton, linen and natural batting. They are hand quilted by me with care, in celebration of the rich tradition of quilting.
It is my personal dream to one day have a home filled with art and furnishings made by friends, family, and other makers. Living in a home filled with objects made with care and creativity, each with a story of their own, is the ultimate luxury. It is my hope that Lesser Bear quilts and fiber goods will be used, loved and become part of your family’s story.
